Synopsis for TVB’s “Love as a Predatory Affair”

TVB will be starting off fresh in the new year with the romantic comedy Love as a Predatory Affair <愛情食物鏈>, a 21-episode drama series starring Kitty Yuen (阮小儀), King Kong (金剛), Jason Chan (陳智燊), and Samantha Ko (高海寧). Premiering on Monday, January 11, it will succeed the time slot of The Executioner <刀下留人>.


They say love is like a food chain. Having beauty and wealth is exactly like being on top of the hill—they are the most desirable, the most suitable, and the most likely to find a life partner. But should love be defined by materialism and physical appearances?

Lo Kwai-fong (Kitty Yuen) is an average, short, thirty-something year-old food supplier agent who is completely inexperienced when it comes to love. But after helping the young restauranteur Lau Pak-yip (Jason Chan) and saving his business, the handsome businessman begins to appreciate Kwai-fong’s inner beauty and falls in love with her.

But Kwai-fong’s neighbor and close friend, the beautiful Ko Kwai-fun (Samantha Ko), is not very pleased to find out about her friend’s new relationship. No matter what she does, she cannot seem to get Pak-yip to bat an eyelash at her. However, she does end up catching the attention of Taiwanese Ta-a noodles specialist Hung Hsien (King Kong), who is willing to do just about anything for her.

Unable to win Pak-yip’s heart, Kwai-fun makes a move on his older brother, Lau Lei-ko (Timothy Cheng) instead. Meanwhile, Pak-yip and Kwai-fong’s relationship starts to approach a red light as Pak-yip begins to face pressure from others due to their atypical pairing. Pak-yip and Kwai-fong’s relationship breaks the robust chain of love, and now the hunters and the hunted have to face challenges that they never thought they would have to face before.

  1. chinese new year coming soon…it’s nice to have a happy drama than the 刀下留人 which was so depressing. stopped watching after a few episodes.

  2. Agree with Janet72 I’ve stopped watching 刀下留人 i find it boring and i’ll give this series a try i like watching Kitty and King Kong Samantha not so much

  3. I’m not sure if Jason and Samantha are lead-material yet. Even in supporting roles, their acting hasn’t been memorable or impactful. Likely to give this drama a miss!!

  4. i thought 刀下留人 was boring but after watching 2 episodes of 愛情食物鏈, i find jason chan very stiff. susan tse is so dramatic…like acting in some opera.

  5. I watch this series because I was attracted to the storyline of a handsome rich nice guy (i.e. a perfect dream guy) seeing the inner beauty of not so gorgeous girl and preferring her over the gorgeous beauty. But then, I see this poster. What does it mean?

    The poster looks like the couple that is truly in love is Jason and Samantha, and Kitty/King Kong just insert themselves between them. 🙁

    I’ve watch up to episode 5. So far, nothing has develop between Jason and Kitty, or Jason and Samantha. Episode 4 and 5 spend more time developing the subplots.

    I hope the series does not end up disappointing and actually follow the synopsis written here.
